This isn’t necessarily true. While some women choose to combine a breast lift with a breast reduction surgery, there’s nothing about the lift surgery that inherently changes your cup size.

What Is a Breast Lift?

One thing that confuses so many Dallas women who haven’t yet consulted with Dr. Hopkins is that they think a lift automatically means a reduction, too. That isn’t the case. A lift is designed to help women who have sagging breasts and excess breast skin. The procedure includes excising the excess skin and repositioning the nipple to a more natural and perkier position on the breast. Ultimately, the goal of this surgery is to give the patient a more youthful, perkier breast appearance.

What is a Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction surgery is an entirely different procedure than a breast lift. With a breast reduction, Dallas women with large natural breasts are choosing to have extra breast tissue excised from their breasts, and to have their breasts recontoured. The entire goal of the breast reduction surgery isn’t to reposition the breasts, as with a lift surgery, but to make the breasts smaller.

Why Some Dallas Women Get Both Procedures Performed at Once

If you’ve lived with unwanted, large natural breasts for some time, then it’s likely that they sag more than normal, too. That’s why so many women who decide to go smaller through a breast reduction surgery decide to get a lift added to their surgical plan, too. It’s because they want to improve the overall appearance of their breasts and feel like reducing their cup size and addressing their breast sagging is the best way to achieve that goal.
